The Answer To Abject Poverty Is Here - The Tesifa Project. It seems like just yesterday we were starting off with a 2-pound bag of rice, determined to do more than just watch as people literally starve to death. We are determined to help the people of East Africa make a permanent “life-giving” change for themselves and their families...
"I Don't Know Why You [Rescued Me] But You Saved My Life." THANK YOU - One of the greatest needs a human being has is to know that they are loved. That is what keeps bringing them back, sure the food is important but love is more important. To us we may be building a building, or giving food, or drilling a water well -- but to them: it is a miracle. Often times things look impossible...but for us, we ask: "but how are we going to do this?" "REFUSE TO DO NOTHING"
Thank you. As you look through these pictures, know that YOU are one of the special individuals that made these life-saving transformations possible. The smiles on these mothers’ faces say more than we could ever express with words. Their children are thriving today because of your generosity.
The most helpless level of poverty
For those of you who have never experienced abject poverty, spend a moment thinking about those who have starved since birth. There is no emptiness that comes close. Every organ in the body suffers, craving sustenance. Sustenance starving children and their families cannot afford. It’s because of this grim reality that our mission of helping the helpless is paramount. And it’s impossible without your help.
